I wont say don't do it, it is your body. But the ink does fade over time and your skin will wrinkle, so think about what it will look like when you are old, and are you willing to live with it.

Um actually that is body paint, not a tattoo, it is a picture taken from "Fantasy Fest" a yearly shin dig held in Key West.

Point being that a body part, tattooed, fast-forward many years, could look vastly different. Plus, a little humor and poetic license. Laughat

Do you actually posses a sense of humor?

Also, not all tattoos fade. I have some I have had for nearly thirty years. It depends on the ink used, the artist, and your skin. I have even had tattoo artists say that my skin holds color really well. There are crappy tattoos out there that fade but not all do.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: Tattoos Cultural appropriation or not?
Personally, I think the term "cultural appropriation" is stupid. It's like the grown-up version of calling someone a copycat because they bought the same lunchbox.

As for tattoos, I don't have any, but I am shopping. I've been to several tattoo conventions over the last few months meeting artists, checking out all the different styles and looking for ideas. So far, I can say that there is a very wide range of skill and artistry across the industry. Things I've learned so far are: Do your research to make sure that you are picking the right artist for the style of tattoo you want, involve the artist in the design of your the tattoo, and then go for it.

Tattoos are just like people: some are beautiful and some are just ugly. But by and large, what differentiates them is less about what you see on the skin and more about the human underneath it.

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart

If that doesn't turn you into an atheist...nothing will. No supreme being would possibly allow that.

Just..wow. Laughat
